Hello and Thank You for visiting!

The first time I visited Sugarcreek, I had that “feeling.” 

You know, the one where you feel completely comfortable and at home.  <sigh!>  Like you could mess up whatever you have to say, and no one will judge you.  Like you could take off your shoes and wiggle your toes, and no one would care. (Not that I did that, of course!)

Basically I felt no pretense in the air in that little burg, and nothing that said hurry.  No horns honking. No long lines of traffic.  Most notable was the occasional Amish buggy, clip-clopping its way up Main Street…a sound so soothing it could lull you into a peaceful trance if you let it.

51a1-c7nyzl-_sx331_bo1204203200_Added to the town’s charm were the groups of ladies who had invited me there to speak.  Both English and Amish, they were so genuine and sweet I felt like I’d know them forever.   I really, really, really didn’t want to leave those women or the place.  From the minute I left Sugarcreek years ago, I wanted to go back!

So it isn’t any wonder that my latest book, The Sisters of Sugarcreek, is set in the quaint town, giving me the chance to do just that—return there again, both figuratively and literally.

If you’re up for a trip in 2017, I hope you’ll come along with me to Sugarcreek! 

Meet The Sisters of Sugarcreek—Jessica, Liz, and Lydia—at Rose’s Knit One Quilt Too Cottage.  They’re an unlikely trio brought together by unusual circumstances.  But as I’ve learned—and as they learn too—sometimes our hardest times in life can bring us the most special and unexpected gifts!

Blessings,
Cathy
